Yesterday i went and picked up my Eric Clapton Signature strat and IMO its AMAZING. I had my doubts but theyre all gone. It delivers such a sweet bluesy tone and its perfect for most of the stuff i play (Bunch of blues and RHCP type stuff) but if i get into heavy distortion the pups buzz. I still use my trusty old Carlson PG-51 which is basically a PRS Custom 24 copy for super distorted stuff. I just wanted to point out this is an AWESOME guitar. Pics tomorrow
Alright heres the pics.






Im SOOOOOOOOOOO stoked about it. The vintage section manager at guitar center was telling me that fender has records of only 94 clapton strats being manufactured w/ a rosewood fretboard but clapton had the production stopped and went with maple. He ran a serial check for me and it dates back to 1991.

Alright, bring in the pics.

Ok, time to pop quiz, what's the difference between normal fender strat and EC Sig strat?

If you can't answer it, give it to me now.

Aren't the electronics all active? And there's the 'swimming pool' routing. Meh.

i thought the clapton sigs had maple fretboards

Like i said, the guy at guitar center told me that there were 94 made w/ rosewood fingerboards and then the production was dropped. I would have gone for the maple but i got it used so there wasnt much of a choice. I love rosewood though. I have it on all my guitars.

very nice. My Clapton strat has a maple fretboard, but I think I like the way yours looks even better. Too much contrast between the maple and black....

Nice guitar! How much did it set you back?

Have fun playing it.

I actually found it on Craigslist and traded about 1k worth of paintball stuff i never used for it. Guess where i got the paintball stuff...i traded it for my old squire which i payed $60 for . Now this is without doubt the BEST LUCK I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. Essentually i just got lucky and traded to people who didnt know what they had. But hey, thats not my problem now is it? The guy met me in the guitar center parking lot and we took it inside to verify its authenticity and the manager from the vintage section recognized it instantly and then ran a serial check and got the year. I just got VERY lucky.

Hah, it's just a normal fender strat with a stamped on EC signature on the headstock and different fretboard material, and they charged you 5 times the price.


j/k

That's a beautiful strat. Post clips?
